LAHBC Hosts a Bitters Forum

Dave Kyle's Bitter Forum 6

DaveMaryoOur Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club April meeting had a special guest that was invited to our meeting to talk about bitters. Dave Kyle (red cap) hosted a bitters forum and shared some of his collection with our members. Our members were in awe by those rare and beautiful figural bitters. Dave talked about collecting bitters and some of the notable collectors that share his love of figural bitters. He also shared with us the history of how he acquired some of his favorite bottles. During the presentation our members were encouraged to ask questions and comment on bitters bottles.

Discussions started quickly and continued for about an hour. When the bitters conversations died down a bit, Dave offered our members the opportunity to come up and get a close look at his bottles. You could see the awe and respect in the faces of many of our members when they examined the bottles. It was a fantastic event that our club members will not soon forget thanks to Dave Kyle’s generous offer to share his bitters with us that evening.
